    yeah its just impossible for me play overwatch anymore, idk if I need a new graphics card or a cpu but the frames dropping/freezing are awful. playing on the lowest possible settings and dont use any overlays, still no. I don't have this problem with any other game

  • Jackscarab
    Jack (@Jackscarab) reported

    I wonder whether I should administer an Overwatch shoot at Otakon next year. Teaching has prepared me well for such a thing. I can project clear orders very loudly. That was one of the two problems with the shoot I went to, the size of the venue being out of the host's control.

    @BlizzardCS Why do you treat console players of #Overwatch like 2nd hand citizens? "Find Group" button still broken, and group chat still screeching, almost a week after update. Can't help but feel that this would have been fixed on PC in hours.

    Reddit's TF2 sub responding with an article about the game's toxcity problems with jokes and "If you get offended by racism in chat, go back to Overwatch" is depressing yet unsurprising.

    @x50squidxx @virginmedia Yeah dude been happening to me since I moved into my gf's place. Got a friend that I met in overwatch who gets the same problem at the same time. Actually making me cry I just want to play without disconnection anxiety

    Curtis Fernandez (@CurtisGG_OW) reported

    @virginmedia Hey, wondering if you are aware of random disconnections? Usually comes back within a few seconds but Overwatch is an unforgiving game when it comes to connection issues.

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN I was checking out the new overwatch summer stuff and noticed that the new Lucio emote that costs league tokens cost 300 but I was talking to my friend and it costs 200 for him. Is this an error or is this deliberately priced differently?

    idk tldr overwatch is stagnating from every angle and the team is trying to be blissfully "unaware" of all the problems and actual good critique by pumping out more and more content, acting like paving over the problems will make them disappear and it makes me sad.

    “Smurfing isn’t a problem.” Really? I had a smurf in every single game tonight. EVERY. SINGLE. GAME. One was a TOP 500. There was not a single game tonight, over about 25 games, where the enemy team DIDN’T HAVE A SMURF. #overwatch

    @PlayOverwatch Hey I'm still having a problem with Overwatch on my console I think it's a bug. It makes my character, teammates, and enemies invisible; also whenever I press start it makes my screen blurry.

    Broke down and got #Overwatch (PS4) before last weekend. Enjoying it... but I gotta ask: Does everyone with a mic sound like someone screaming out of broken fast food speaker?

    Trying to understand why my roommate and I still have so many problems partying up and joining lobbies. Certain games I never have to worry about NAT type. Like Overwatch/Titanfall. Other games if we're not both Open/Moderate there's no chance. Other games it's inconsistent.

    Dont know about you but I love how fucking broke @PlayOverwatch is soo many bugs but they don't give a shit about fixing it Im fed up with #Overwatch abusing the community with constant bs from reworks to nerfs They say they listen they obviously don't Fix your shit @Blizzard_Ent

    The same routine every day. It becomes so normal that he hates it and he wants a change in the never ending system. Even playing Fortnite and Overwatch start to bore him. Which is an issue. After easily finishing his work, he stretches and then takes the last bite from his peach.

  • itsandrewgrace
    Andrew Scott Grace (@itsandrewgrace) reported

    i started calculating my own SR since overwatch's system is very broken. should be around 3340 but because of gameplay sabotage from random players, i ranked much lower. easy calculation to fix my score to what it really is though.

  • itsandrewgrace
    Andrew Scott Grace (@itsandrewgrace) reported

    gameplay sabotage is a MASSIVE issue in overwatch. refusing to switch heros when you're clearly being fucking useless is GAMEPLAY SABOTAGE. @PlayOverwatch gotta start punishing, its ruining the game.

    I don’t wanna be wrecked by gm players, i don’t wanna get throwers. Right now, as it seems, the game is unplayable for me. Can you please respond and promise to fix? I really love overwatch.

    @PlayOverwatch hey overwatch, i want to tell you how bad overwatch is on console (ps4). First of all i have problems with speaking in game chat it honestly is too loud to understand and LFG isnt working so whenever i find game i only get smurf-dps and it is frustrating. Pls fix.

    thegamingdiaries (@thegamingdiary) reported

    For those interested Xbox One: Overwatch Ps4: Horizon Zero Dawn Nintendo Switch: Crash Bandicoot N-sane Trilogy (but I did just get Picross S2 so that will be added in) Also I'm feeling like something else on Xbox as well but have an idea for that (and not just more Crash).

    I'm occasionally a little miffed that with character-based shooters, the character I like most design-wise I never like playing. Overwatch doesn't have this problem, but a few others do.

    Mother fucking Overwatch man every single time I try to play it something always is wrong with it and then they try to fix something but only make it worse and then with it still be broken they decide to add something new that makes it even more unbalanced and it only gets worse.

    //Is anyone having a problem with the mics in Overwatch? I can barely hear what the team is saying without static. Thought it was just that one guy, but it's been happening to every match I've played. Had to turn off my volume.
